I learned a little bit about Greek/Roman mythology in my AP English class in high school. It was fun, but it was mostly meaningless to me. The other classes didn't even teach it. Do you think it's important for homeschoolers? Would you teach it as its own subject, as part of literature, part of religious history, or what? What grade(s) would you feel are best for mythology?
We've touched on it a TINY bit already (because of things like the Hercules movie or astronomy constellation names). Mythology is everywhere. I don't plan to actually "teach" it until high school, though. I'll probably have the kids read several of the stories just because they're fun, but we'll also talk a little about the history as it ties into the Mystery of History curriculum.
I think we'll probably look at it a little every year. There are things all around us that spring from mythology, and I would like to put it in a Christian perspective for our children before they get the chance to learn something different...
